The Gift of Giving, Grace Community Fellowship

Volunteer quilters at Grace Community Fellowship have been making quilts for the Eugene Mission for more than two years. Homeless people come to the Eugene Mission to get back on their feet and have a safe place to rest and be cared for in the process. 400 beds fill the dorms in which they sleep and each one is covered with a quilt that is handmade. The Eugene Mission always needs more quilts due to the population of homeless men and women leaving and sometimes taking a quilt that they’ve grown attached to with them. Quilts are a symbol of love. The process of making one is a long one which requires hours of cutting, sewing and putting pieces together.
